My son sort of "commisioned" this one. He is a volunteer firefighter and paramedic. He and his wife love to decorate their home with the fleur de lis, an important symbol of Louisiana's past and present, especially since Katrina.
I have made several pencil studies first and this is the final result. I want to do it in colored pencil with maybe a little fluid acrylic. I have to see how it develops.
